Shades of Christmas…in January

The days are getting longer, it’s the dead of winter, and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Wait, what?! Christmas was last month! True, but it’s colder than it was last month, and there’s always that one person who leaves up Christmas decorations year-round. Let’s not forget that the lottery world doesn’t adhere to our sense of time. Holidays, or shades of them, can strike at any time.

Lotto Texas saw shades of Christmas January 26, 2022, and saw its jackpot rise to $7.75 million. Powerball didn’t see any shades of Christmas (that was last week), but that had no effect on the jackpot. After the dust settled, the Powerball jackpot rose to $104 million.
